What Our Clients Say

  • review rating 5  We recently hired McCarthy Painting Inc. for the repair and painting of a small bedroom (including a closet) and an additional closet in our older home. The bedroom needed the removal of old wallpaper, the replacement of its cracked ceiling (using blueboard), and the painting of the walls, ceiling and woodwork. We also needed the complete repair of the second closet, including the repair of the walls and the replacement of the floor. We are very happy with the outcome! All of their work was done in a very professional and timely manner. The repair work to the ceiling and walls of the bedroom was excellent. The repair work to the closet walls and floor was also done very well. The painting job was neat, clean and beautiful. The communication was great and the workers were consistently courteous. In addition, McCarthy Painting Inc. offered a competitive price and was highly responsive to our needs. We highly recommend the McCarthy Painting Inc.

  • review rating 5  I have used Mike and his guys for several work projects, he always does a great job and in a timely fashion. I have been using him for my own house projects also. He and his guys have transformed my old cruddie looking front hall to a brand new clean look, what an amazing difference!! I highly recommend him for painting, plastering, patching and light carpentry work. He does many different jobs so he can do more than what I described. An all around great guy does all types of work and I highly recommend him .

“Michael and team painted a bathroom, our baby’s bedroom and our guest room/office. Michael and his team are outstanding. I cannot say enough positive things about him. He is professional, communicative, and a talented painter. He advised us on color choice and sheen, and he executed the work flawlessly. The rooms are beautiful now and without question I will hire Michael again for future paint jobs. He left our house immaculate (they even washed the windows!). I had one minor concern after the job was done (a crack emerged in the ceiling, not Michael’s fault) and he called me immediately upon receiving my note and came out the next day to repair it. I cannot imagine a better customer experience.”

“I’m having the ceiling and walls of my front stairway redone wallpaper removed patched and painted. So far the paper has been removed and patching in progress and it looks great already but he tells me he’s still working on it . I’m not usually impressed by contractors and delay having work done for that reason but in this case I rest easy that it’s going to be OK.”

“Michael and Kevin did a great job on a last minute project fixing numerous cracks in our drywall and ceiling. Both were extremely professional, courteous, prompt, and responsive. I’ve worked with other contractors before, and this was probably the most positive experience I’ve had in terms of the quality of work performed and professionalism on the part of the contractor. Highly recommend.”

“Michael and his team patched a number of holes in our walls and ceilings from extensive electrical work we had done. We have less than perfect plaster walls and ceilings and Michael did an amazing job patching them. We did not ask him to paint, but he went the extra mile for us and primed all the patches and even checked our paint for us and let us know it had gone bad, which saved us a lot of time. I was not home when the job was finished and he even called me the next day to make sure I was happy with the work. And I was for sure. I highly recommend him!!!”

“We’re putting our house on the market and had some last minute painting, repair and wallpaper needs. I got Michael’s name from Angie’s List and called. He offered to come by the next day and look at the job. He was able to come back and do the job 3 days later. He repaired a few cracks, painted some patches and took down & replaced some damaged wallpaper. Excellent work and very prompt. We had a faux finish that was difficult to match, but he tried a few different approaches and came by the house the day before the service to see how it would look. He did a great job of matching it and came back the next day to do the job. While he was here I asked him to do a few extra things and he was more than happy to take care of everything.”

“Michael and his assistant repaired extensive drywall damage in several areas of our home and matched the existing paint colors well. they kept the house amazingly, impressively clean–despite the sanding of plaster and drywall. He arrived promptly and completed the project on schedule. Process was smooth as expected. I had used him once before just before thanksgiving and he completed that smaller scale work in one day. He stayed a little longer to be sure the second coat of paint dried to a perfect match. That job was mostly in my son’s room and he was careful to move furniture and items back just as they were afterwards. this more recent time, the work was more scattered about the house and he matched each paint and repaired the walls perfectly while still keeping my house clean. and I realize plaster can often be a messy job. And his assistant brought treats for the golden retreiver! Got to love em.”

“Michael painted all the ceilings and polyurethaned the woodwork and painted the walls in 5 rooms and 2 hallways with stairs, and all ceilings in those areas. We were very pleased with Michael’s work He is very professional and very accommodating. There was one area that did not look like he had done which was woodwork, he came right back over and did it. He thought he had done it he said, but didn’t question my opinion. We had had him at a previous time for wallpaper removal, re-wallpapering, painting ceilings and polyurethaning the woodwork. That was a great job, so had him the next time for the job just stated, and would have him again.”
